20 Tips to Get Rid of Procrastination
1. Don’t try to do all your work in one go – you’ll get bored and cranky and you’ll want to find other things to spend your time on; 2. Make a time plan; 3. Listen to yourself; 4. Be honest with yourself… 5. …and NO excuses! 6. Get the initial research/workings/readings out of the way first; 7. Focus on chunks, rather than the whole thing; 8. Prioritise; 9. Don’t look at the end point at the beginning – If you hope to be finished as soon as you’ve started, you’ll only become overwhelmed and tired; 10. Work in frequent bursts, taking frequent breaks too; 11. Eliminate distractions; 12. Stay energised; 13. Don’t wait until there’s not enough time…start when there’s plenty; 14. Many distractions are psychological – they wouldn’t be distractions if you didn’t have a more important task at hand; 15. When overwhelmed by tasks, leave anything that can wait until tomorrow…until tomorrow; 16. Set specifics – define your activities, don’t leave them vague; 17. Link your work and play. Bring everything together (i.e. planning isn’t just for one task, and it’s not just limited to work with deadlines); 18. Start a ritual to your day to keep you focused by default; 19. Understand your reasons for completing a task and ask why it’s important; 20. Stop looking for a wand to make everything finish by magic…you’re not.
